Dear Larry,

Another thanks for the manuscript of volume 4, which I received last week and read the same day. Another page-turner I couldn't put down.

Nothing that happened in your suit against the USBA, as you call it, surprised me in the least since I've often represented the unpopular, the oppressed and the repressed.

Those who take on the establishment invariably find a new set of rules is in place. The rule of law disappears just when you need it most. Discretion is exercised one way exclusively, facts are distorted, discovery is prevented, obviously perjured testimony is accepted, legal arguments are ignored, clear error is dishonestly deemed harmless, and so on, and the entire course of shoddy treatment often ends up buried in an unpublished opinion. Once in a while justice prevails anyway, usually as a result of sheer luck--a maverick judge is assigned to the case, the case catches public attention for some reason, that kind of thing.

Thanks again for a wonderful read.
